when a picture becomes more… ART

Do you have photos hidden away because you aren’t sure what to think of them? This has been my dilemma for the last 4 years. I have pictures taken by a professional photographer Zack Weber, he did an amazing job, and the book cover for Runaway Amish Girl, has his beautiful photos work on it, both front and back cover. BUT, there was one particular picture that I just couldn’t understand. It looks awkward. Kinda creepy, as if a dark cloud was hanging over me. I studied it occasionally, frown 🙁 and put it back in a safe place on my laptop, hidden away where no one would ever find it and I wouldn’t be reminded of it every time I looked at files.

FINALLY, one day last week, I took the courage to post the photo on Facebook, with captioning my frustration of not knowing how to take this photo. I have some amazing supportive peeps and I was told the photographer captured a beautiful, intriguing piece of ART. It’s not just a photo, it’s art! Thank you, Author Amanda Thrasher for seeing the art in this 🙂

Things are finally making sense now and I am thinking of making a poster of this piece. It’s growing on me! Slowly but surely. One day, I’m hope it’ll be considered a treasure. Because that’s what I am! 🙂

  1. beautiful art, incredible woman and a brave heart… all registered in this pic. Dear Emma, I have sent you an email I hope you received it. 🙂

  2. Definately Art :). It reminds me of Psalm 3:3 – “But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.” He is the light in our dark places 🙂 No more looking down.

  3. There is such a mystique in the picture… There is something a little Gothic about it. I love it 🙂
